2. Umar Gul 5-6 vs New Zealand, Oval, 2009
Umar Gul is currently the 2nd highest wicket taker after Shahid Afridi who succeeded him recently. Pakistan were a strong contender to compete during the course of tournament. Their bowling strength has always been a boon under any conditions. In an intense league match, New Zealand won the toss and elected to bat. Umar Gul destroyed New Zealand’s middle order in a ferocious manner, having provided the early breakthroughs by Mohammad Amir and Abdul Razaq. He was also on the verge of getting a hattrick once in middle overs, though ended up taking a 5 wicket haul conceding just 6 runs in 3 overs. New Zealand were restricted to mere 99 runs with Umar Gul’s majestic spell, which eventually was easily chased by Pakistan.
